I spent four nights here recently while visiting Kobe. The location of the hotel is great. It’s a very short stroll from Sannomiya train and bus station, which is the main transport hub in the city. It’s also in an area surrounded by restaurants, bars and shops. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Checkin isn’t until 3pm, but they happily held my luggage for me as I had arrived early in the morning. The rooms are typical Japanese business hotel room style. That means they are small, but have most things you could need. The room had a fridge, plenty of usb sockets for charging portable devices, a good shower and a comfortable double bed. The bathroom was equipped with a hair dryer, shampoo, shower gel, razors, toothpaste and toothbrushes should you need them. The only downside to this style of accommodation is that clothing storage is very limited. This wasn’t an issue for me, but there is only space to hang a handful of clothing items. There is a buffet breakfast served at the cafe on the ground floor. The buffet style is entirely Japanese, so if you are happy to eat local dishes you’ll be fine. If you want western fair you’d need to look elsewhere. Don’t expect any bread, pastries or cereals. It tended to be fish, miso soup, various vegetables and rice along with coffee and fruit juice. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would certainly consider it again should I return to Kobe.

We spent 2 nights here with breakfast whilst exploring the beautiful city of Kobe. The automAted check in was simple but staff were on hand to assist if we needed help. Our standard room was compact but very comfy- more than adequate after a busy day of sightseeing! We made use of the coin slot laundry on 2nd floor which did the job but needed 3 extra dry cycles before we could wear or pack the clothes so build in time if you plan to wash clothes. Breakfast was Japanese style and both filling and tasty with plenty to choose from - we missed having bread but were not left hungry by any means. Staff were without exception really helpful and all in all this was a good value place. We were thrilled to be so central - right in the hubbub of the town but were not disturbed by the trains or buses even though we were right by both stations. A great choice of hotel for anyone looking to explore and travelling by bus or train - also close to Portliner if you need to get to the airport - apparently takes hardly any time at all.
